Lots of fun working with Dwight at Swiftship's in Morgan City. We had our rooms permanently assigned at Hampton Inn.

There are not enough words to describe how much Dwight means to our family. Although I was only a small part of his life, he and Linda were a major part of all of the most important times in my life. From helping plan when Jeremy and I got engaged, to being a part of our wedding, to helping us make our first house a home and especially loving our children as their own. We love you Dwight and will miss you always.
